Ingredients

1/2 cup quinoa flour

1/3 cup and 1 tbsp. water

1/2 onion finely chopped

2 tbsp. cilantro finely chopped

2 tbsp.greens from the green onions finely chopped

1/2 jalepeno finely chopped ( optional )

salt to taste

2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil or ghee

Method

1. Heat a well seasoned cast iron skillet or a non stick pan on medium heat.

2. First mix the flour and water  (adding water in stages not all at once) thoroughly  so no lumps remain and then add all the other ingredients ( except oil or ghee). The consistency of the batter should be runny but not watery, if it is then the crepes break and stick.

3. Pour a small ladle full or 2 -3 tbsp. of batter on to the skillet and spread it evenly with the spoon in a circle ( should give you a 5-6 inch circle). And now put a little oil around the whole crepe.

4. Now cover with a lid for a minute or two till the crepe loses its wet look

5.With a spatula flip up the crepe from one side to see if it is brown and crisp, if it is then it is ready to be flipped.

6.Once the crepe is turned let it roast and cook on the other side for few minutes on medium heat making sure it does not char and become too crisp.

7. Continue making the crepes .

8.Serve crepes with crisp raddish slaw stuffed into them and green cilantro mint chutney. ENJOY!!!!
